What will be the less expensive way to remain in touch?

they have an connect@sea program, but it seems you need to buy a base plan.

any way to just remain connected via text without running a data roaming tab and without getting callas?

If you put your phone into airplane mode and then turn on wifi only while in airplane mode, would only be charged for your internet plan you purchase thru the cruise ship. You should check out the internet packages available and the restrictions for such packages.

With your example of using Skype while onboard, you may want to rethink that as the following is listed on their website:

"Internet Packages are nonrefundable at the time of purchase. Please be advised that bandwidth-heavy applications such as Skype, YouTube, and MagicJack are not available."
